Dash Cam shows Man Shot by New Jersey Police While Raising his Hands



Video and audio released by the Bridgeton Police Department on Tuesday shows officers Braheme Days and Roger Worley ordering Jerame Reid,36, not to move.

The video appears to show Reid with his hands in front of him as he stands to get out of the car and is shot and killed by the officers.


Days and Worley had pulled the car over at the intersection of South Avenue and Henry Street, in Bridgeton, at about 9:20 p.m. on Dec. 30. 

The video shows the officers driving through the city's streets and coming up on on blue Jaguar, driven by Leroy Tutt, 46, of Long Branch. They pull the car over moments later, and after Days approaches the passenger side and introduces himself, he tells the driver he's being pulled over for going through a stop sign on South Pine Street, which is adjacent to Henry Street.

Days asks the driver to get his driver's license and seconds later, the officer is seen pulling his gun. 




Here’s a partial transcript of the interaction from the South Jersey Times:
